As the IKEA streetwear trend (yes, it still feels absolutely ridiculous to type) rages on, The Shoe Surgeon has got in on the act, designing a small capsule in tandem with Los Angeles designer Elliot Evan.
The collection comprises a pair of Air Jordan 1 field boots and a bomber jacket, each achieved by transmogrifying IKEA’s polypropylene-and-polyester FRAKTA bag. An instruction manual has been included for additional credibility.
As ever with TSS, the release is super limited, with only 10 pairs of shoes and 10 jackets available. Priced at $1,500 for the set, each bespoke order will come with a custom leather Balenciaga x IKEA-inspired tote bag.
The pack releases at a random time on Saturday, May 20. In the week leading up to the release, The Shoe Surgeon will leave a manual at the IKEA store in Carson, Los Angeles, which a lucky person can exchange for a set.
